What specific things do I look for if I’m trying to confirm bed bug identification?

There are a number of specific things to look for when trying identify bed bugs. Bed bugs are flat, wingless creatures. Adult bed bugs are about 3/16-inch (5mm) long, 1/8-inch (3mm) wide, brown to reddish-brown, with oval, flat bodies – not too small to see.  This is a common misconception when identifying bed bugs. The newly-hatched nymphs resemble the adults, but are smaller and somewhat lighter in color and appear translucent. Though bed bugs in all stages can be seen by the naked eye, bed bug nymphs can be too small to provide a positive confirmation without using a microscope to identify bed bugs.
